One blog, One year, a lot of Women
ROSE Blog: Rikki's Open Source Exchange
Happy Anniversary to my humble blog!
When I look back over my past year of blogging, I have to wonder whether the FLOSSPOLS research indicating that the FLOSS community is composed of only 1.5% women is still accurate.
Over the course of the past year, I've learned about individuals, groups, meetings, webinars, resources, books, dinners, organizations, mailing lists, interviews, articles, websites, and events that are by, about, or of interest to women in open source. I've also noticed a growing interest in the future of women in open source and how to help girls (or, as I like to think of them, "women-in-open-source-to-be"s) become more involved with technology.
In honor of this anniversary, I thought it was appropriate to get back to basics: Mentors.
Cheers and Happy Mentoring!
